What a welcome sight!   The onion field became a watery pasture fueled by the runoff from the “bayou river” (our street, lol.)   We’re so dry here.  Even with the rains we’ve had, the tanks, lakes and bayou are dangerously low. 

Last night we had a 3 minute frog stangler type shower, followed by an hour or so of misty stuff.  It may have rained a little more in the early AM as the streets were damp around the edges.   We’re so thankful for every drop that falls. 

Tomorrow, when the sun is shining, all the pecan tree leaves will be standing out from their little stems all firm and happy again…they’ve been hanging limp and wilted for days.  The tomatoes will look clean and riper…and what little grass is left will look brighter and greener.

This afternoon,  the flood gates opened for about an hour and blessed us with almost 1 1/4″ of much needed rain.  I had to pull off the hwy coming home as I was doing 25mph and still couldn’t see the road for the gales of rain!   The whole week shows the potential for more rain :-)  The Lord is good.

  1. Love your posts, I read them all the time, I see in the photo that you have one of those upside down tomato growing things, did it work? Because mine didn’t, did not even get a flower. I must admit that it is still alive tho, just a tiny little green leggy tomato plant in mid winter. ( I am in NSW Australia)

    • Marg, we’ve had it for 5 years…actually planted it for the first 3 years. Year 1, it had 2 tomatoes. Year 2, it had nothing. Year 3, we had lots of leggy green and blooms. The weather hit the 100’s for 57 days in a row and everything died. I haven’t bothered to plant it since then.

  2. I guess we are not living right, we only had one-tenth of an inch. I hope it moves to the west soon.
